Keeping Your St. Petersburg Dentistry Affordable

Dental Insurance and Financing

Did you know that dental insurance differs greatly from medical insurance? While most patients are used to nearly unlimited lifetime coverage after meeting their co-pay or deductible with medical insurance, most dental plans have a very low annual maximum benefit.

Most dental insurance plans have not increased their benefit maximums since the 1970s. But inflation has caused an increase in related fees, such as lab fees, dental supplies and labor costs – even the cost of your annual insurance premium. Yet the benefits remained the same.

The Care You Deserve

Dr. Tague is committed to proving you with the dental treatment that is in the best interest of your health and goals. To achieve those goals, he may recommend a procedure that is not covered by insurance. These procedures typically are more conservative and last longer than the cheaper alternative.


In an effort to make your dental care as affordable as possible, Tague Dental Care does accept third party financing through CitiHealth. Patients are also able to pay with credit cards.
